AECOM joint venture awarded multiyear contract to renew the Cannon House Office Building on Capitol Hill

AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 130 countries around the world, announced today that a joint venture in which it participates was awarded a multiyear contract from the Architect of the Capitol for the renovation of the Cannon House Office Building in Washington.

The Cannon House Office Building is the oldest congressional office building on Capitol Hill, and houses offices for members of the U.S. House of Representatives and several congressional committees.

The joint venture between AECOM and McDonough Bolyard Peck will partner with the client as construction manager as agent for the project. The Cannon House Office Building will remain fully occupied and operational throughout the renewal program, with the occupants of each wing under construction being temporarily relocated.

“AECOM’s experience in delivering intelligent and forward-thinking solutions for the renovation of the Pentagon building as well as for other U.S. government projects positioned us well for this assignment,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We appreciate that this important client places its trust in AECOM.”
